In a prospective cohort study of a segment of patients included in the CATT, researchers obtained spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images using the Cirrus HD-OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec) or Spectralis system (Heidelberg Engineering) at weeks 56 and 104 after initiation of anti-VEGF treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
